Error description

  • When a user attempts to add multiple entries into the Input
    Files definition and the number exceeds the screen length,
    zSecure will eventually go into a loop.
    
    The loop occurs in CKRESET.EDITSET, looks like it has to do with
     the depth of the screen.
    On a 25 line terminal, ZDTSELS go down from 12 to 4, and
    then remains at 4, instead of going down to 0.  Does not happen
    when the last table line on the terminal is still free.
